Ian Sadler is a Chemistry Teacher at English Martyrs' School. Ian's current interest is the development of 'Apps' for use in the Science classroom. In Ian's project, teachers in the Science Department learned how to create free apps, e.g. revision quizzes using www.appshed.com, share them with students and evaluate them. This required Ian to firstly learn how to create apps himself (something he had never done before) then teach his colleagues how to create apps. Ian hoped that by the Summer term, a Chemist, Biologist and a Physicist in the department would have successfully made a relevant app that has been trialed by students and found to have improved their learning.
